Wanting some advice. Sunday night had headache at bedtime felt like a heartbeat in my head. Since then had a tension type headache that comes and goes.

Taking cocodamol and using a forehead stick. Started taking fluoxetine three weeks ago.

Got quite a lot of tension in my neck:back from fibromyalgia at the minute but my head is quite literally doing my head in

      also might be worth taking up something like yoga or medetation 

      or just switching of with a self hypnoses cd for an hr one for relaxtion 

      we dont realise how tense we are till we try to relax .

    I agree with Tiswas , and taking Cocodamol for headache is like using a sledgehammer to crack a walnut, if you don't mind me saying - far better with paracetamol.
